Last year we did 260 hours, took part in a lot of cruises to channel islands etc. This year i've used the boat twice so far about 10 hours max. Very poor

2001 season accurately rwecorded 65 house with a boat that was not easy to launch.
2002 curtailed when she was sold earlier than I thought so about 30 on the Zodiac and 10 on the little Humber that replaced her.
So far this year about 35/40 but not accurately recorded.

The break even point for HPDI over striaght two stroke comes quite quickly I belive. After that though, recovering the cost of 4S o/b and then i/b diesel becomes an increasingly longer term project. Does it not?

I must admit that if we still had petrols their would be no way i could have done as many hours last year it would have cost me thousands in fuel.
